himself elected, a partisan endeavor, cornell, and didn't bother to check the facts during that whole period, making him a person who's willing to do or say anything to get elected. today's politics are broken because people like president obama say stuff that they can't back up policy wise. and that's his real problem. >> the question was does congressman joe wilson need to apologize like congressman joe wilson did? >> i don't think he should apologize. this is america and you have the right to say what you think u and in today's america you should call it like you see it. you know, the president has been back-pedaling, and this program has been unraveling. and this sis the downfall of ths presidency in many ways. you see his credibility going down. when people stop trusting a politician, it's over. >> okay. so cornell, listen. there's some polling may indicate that it's, you know, cornyn is on, is on the right side of history here maybe -- >> there is no polling that says that cornyn is on the right side of history. there's no polling on that. >> is obama honest and trustworthy? 46%

the administration now has delayed the enrollment. they say they and paneleded it until after the 2014 elections. next year people will pay much higher prices than this year. so i think long term, we submitted a plan. the president talks about a plan that he is open to plans women submitted a plan. myself, paul ryan, senator co-bush, we introduced a bill before it was introduced. >> one of the things that i think is pretty cool about this booking, i'm not just saying this. you are two of the most candid people on capitol hill and that says a lot. a lot of candid people up there. so let's just assume for the sake of argument that what you say is true and that you're going to keep believing that what you believe. but you're also a practical politician. you know in your heart of hearts that nothing is going to change as long as the president is in office, right if. >> i take president at his word. the president says we have good ideas. we single him a letter four years ago. that deal is still there. we could take our plan, let people sign up for the republican plan. let people sign up for his plan.

in front of your mind about nelson mandela. the 1994 election. south africa's first, is just stu pendous. it won't for two days and they had to call for helicopters and cargo planes and it was the most extraordinary thing. i think what his old comrade in arms and as we know, the spokesman for the presidency said, he stamped his authority. even on prison. he earned the respect and quietly demanded the respect and got it of his prison warders. and max said this is a man who proved that simply by being so dignified forced even the adversary to respect him. and i think that is just so tremendous. how he did that. we talk about hill as if he was an angel. he was a man with a core of steel. and he was able to be that and also to be so incredibly human and fun. all the pictures you see, he is smiling and dancing. a most remarkable combination. >> you met with him many times. one of the thing that i read this evening, that i thought was so fascinating was somebody talking about mandela. the cunning politician. obviously rerevere him for his accomplishments but he said that he wielded his halo as

kiddingly say the vadvicei give him, he might be very careful. he is doing very well and might get elected. and that is a great burden and major responsibility but i think he is handling himself quite well. >> do you want him to run? >> i want him to do what he wants to do. i'm probably not you know, too much -- i encourage other people to do what they want to with their lives. >> all right, fair enough. so i want to ask you your views on this potential deal with iran. because i am trying to figure out where you would be on it, and my gut tells me that you would probably be inclined to support a diplomatic deal with iran. but i don't want to speak for you, a new usa today research poll shows 32% of those polled improve of the nuclear interim pact with iran, 42% of those disapprove. what do you think? >> yes, i think under the circumstances it is a great breakthrough. and in the campaign you heard me say we ought to do more diplomacy and shooting from the hip. and with syria, now it turns out there were many lies told to us, even about the sarin gas, so i would say diplomacy, even as it is
